BCRS presents a lecture with Conductor-Composer Jaelem Bhate who will teach us how a score is one of the most valuable musical resources available to musicians, allowing not just conductors, but players themselves to act as the composer's advocate. Scores provide information about a composer in a much deeper way than just the notes on the page, and with a bit of detective work, anyone can come to understand the style, intentions, and nuance of any given composer. Learn to recognize common clues and first steps in unlocking these composer secrets in this workshop, through the study of sample scores from the late Baroque and early Classical eras.
